FEATURED "PIC OF THE DAY" SEPTEMBER 30, 2012
Today was a day that just couldn't be described without getting emotional. Rallies were held from Cochrane to Toronto against the Ontario Government's cancellation of Northlander service. These rallies resulted in hundreds of people gathering at each and every single station stop expressing a mix of anger, sadness, and all the while waving the "Not For Sale" pickets. The century old passenger train service performed it's last revenue runs on September 28th. The Northlanders were understandably a little behind schedule today, and with a sincere "Chin up boys" cackling across the airwaves from the Conductor of the recently arrived 214, I catch the last southbound 222 as it rolls past mile 3.93 of the Temagami Subdivision. I can honestly say as I type this, i still can't believe the service in cancelled.
